Willemsbrug

Eye-catching bridge house Willemsbrug, built in 1928, has prominent ribbon windows on three sides, offering a spectacular panoramic view. Although it’s tempting to stay seated in the windowsill, many Amsterdam must-sees are within walking distance, so step out the front door and explore! Cross the bridge for a stroll down the ‘Haarlemmerdijk’ – one of Amsterdam’s most popular shopping streets – or head out in the opposite direction for the leafy Westerpark, where you might even bump into one of the many festivals that are hosted there. Criss-cross the quaint canals of the Jordaan area to get to the Nine Streets and Anne Frank House.

Want to explore more neighbourhoods of Amsterdam? Public transport leaves right around the corner in the direction of Museum Square, Artis Zoo and the Albert Cuypmarket. Step onto the ‘Pontsteiger’ ferry to visit the NDSM area in Amsterdam Noord, a beloved place among culture-driven locals. From your hotel room, Amsterdam’s Central Station is 9 minutes by bus and 20 minutes on foot.

Architecture & History

From 1928 to 2017 the Willemsbrug bridge house accommodated the city’s bridge keepers. In 2017 the bridge house started a new chapter as one of 28 suites for SWEETS hotel.

Architect 1928: Pieter Lodewijk Kramer
Architect 2017: Space&Matter
Architectural Style: Amsterdam School
Location: Nassauplein
Waterway: Kostverlorenvaart
Bridge Type: Bascule bridge

The Willemsbrug bridge house stands on the edge of the busy Nassauplein (square), opposite the Haarlemmerpoort (arch). This Amsterdam School building from 1928, is the oldest existing bridge control building designed by Pieter Lodewijk Kramer and is also one of his most imaginative designs. It is quite striking because of the unusual roof form. The undulating roof with projecting eaves is reminiscent of a beret. The overhang shielded the bridgemaster from the sun. The building is also characterized by its rounded corners, the unusual design of the wrought-iron handrail and in particular by the white, wide, projecting widow frames, which fold around the building on the side. Because the windows continue around the side elevations, the bridgemaster had a good view over the Singelgracht (canal).
